Snowed in night and continued in a.m. until 10 o’clock, then sun shone and was a nice day but ground all covered with snow. The men chored and Wm cleaned at Barn and Will got a load cane and he and Roy hay at hills in p.m. Wm churned butter at noon and he came in from Ed’s at 2 a.m. and brought us some beef. Will and I never slept last night so this is a miserable day but I managed to get meals and bake bread and clean a little. Narvin Boyd brought turkeys and posts for sale and got a load of corn to take home.
